How to Go Kaptai Lake

Kaptai Lake is a man-made lake located in the Rangamati district of Bangladesh.It was created in 1962 with the construction of the Kaptai Dam on the Karnaphuli River, which resulted in the displacement of thousands of indigenous people from their ancestral lands.

Despite the controversy surrounding its creation, Kaptai Lake has become a popular tourist destination due to its scenic beauty and the various recreational activities available there. Visitors can enjoy boat rides on the lake, explore the surrounding forests, go fishing, or visit the nearby tribal villages.

Rangamati, on the other hand, is a district located in the southeastern part of Bangladesh, bordered by the Indian state of Tripura to the north, the Chittagong Hill Tracts to the south and southeast, and the Mizoram state of India to the east.
